by tuesday. that doesn't mean there's a consensus yet. listen to this from the nra after today's white house meeting. quote, we were disappointed with how little this had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. we will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of madmen. i'm in favor of a nationwide ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and high volume magazines. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americans who need it. meanwhile, there's another school shooting today in california. a 16-year-old reportedly felt he was being bullied was accused of attempted murder. the student took direct aim and hit one classmate in taft union high school. he then aimed specifically at another classmate and then missed. kyung lah is in california with the latest. every time you hear these stories right now, a shudder comes with it because of what happened at sandy hook. what do we actually know about what happened here? >> we're learning, actually, a little more. po
that we can act cooperatively. >> the nra's come out with a statement today in which they say a number of things. but they also say that only honest law abiding gunowners will be affected if we, quote, if anyone is attacking firearms and ignoring children. that's not the solution to the crisis we face. of course their position has always been this. clearly that is going to be a very tough battle for the president. and it will rely on many democrats who are in red states and who have felt the full force of the pulleying nra stand up and be counted. are they going to do that? >> i think that the issue remains a very open one in the minds of many of my colleagues because they are hearing from their constituents that we really need to do something about gun violence. in fact, i heard that said to me personally again and again and again in the days that i was in newtown after this horrific tragedy, the days and the weeks that i spent huge amounts of time there. people in newtown, people in connecticut and across the country are saying we have to do something about gun violence. and let's re
by gun advocates. my exclusive interview with neil heslin. also the nra is not as powerful as you think. he's standing up to them. and the sheriff saying this -- >> calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. you can beg for mercy, hide under the bed or fight back. >> but the mayor says this. >> to have him do that was so irresponsible. >> they go head-to-head tonight. >>> plus the controversy surrounding an nhl ref just days before the super bowl. this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. we'll get to america's battle over guns in a few moments. we begin with another item on president obama's agenda -- immigration. with 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country, the president says those who want to become citizens, should pass background checks, learn english, then get to the back of the line. this is what the president told the crowd of a high school in las vegas today. >> the reason i came here today is because of a challenge where the differences are dwindling, where a broad consensus is emerging, and where a call for action can now be heard coming from all a
by tuesday. but that doesn't mean there's a consensus yet. listen to this from the nra after today's white house meeting "we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. we will not allow law abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen." that's where the nra stands. now we'll remind you exactly where i stand on guns. i'm in favor of a nation-wide ban on military style semiautomatic assault weapons and high capacity magazines. i want to close the gun show loopholes and require private dealers to run background checks on all buyers at gun shows and see president obama for increasing mental health funding for all americans who need it. meanwhile another shooting in california. a 16-year-old who said he was bull lid attempted murder. took aim and hit one student in taft high school. he then aimed specifically at another classmate but missed. our reporter is live with the latest. kyung, every time you hear these stories break now, a shudder comes with it b

it, but most americans believe the nra propaganda. the nra buys scholars. they buy statistics. it's just wrong. >> lies. total lies. britain has strong gun control, for example. and averages 35 gun murders a year. america has very lax gun control and has 11,000. britain is about a fifth the size of america. i can do simple math. japan has the toughest gun control in the world. they have two or three murders a year. australia had a massacre in the '90s. they brought in a ban on all main high-powered guns and assault rifles and so on. they have had no mass shootings since. this is not rocket science. it's there to be had. the problem is that the nra, and i'm sure mr. jones is a big fan of theirs and probably helps them. >> he probably thinks they're way, way,way too much part of the establishment. he's way, way to the right of the nra. >> the political power the nra now wield means that politicians are too coward to say anything. i have people say to me, you're so brave. hot is brave about wanting to stop 20 more children getting murders? >> i don't think it's the nra power. it's pe
. >> and john walsh of america's most wanted said nra has held congress hostage for years. plus congressman and nra point person who says this. >> there's nothing more critical to our nation's wellbeing than our children's safety. >> why he thinks the the way to stop shootings is to put armed guns outside every school in america. >> and why is rob lowe taking an assault against assault weapons? >> i like guns and i don't know what to do with an assault weapon. i don't know why i would want one. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >> good evening. you're looking live at the white house where in a matter of hours, vice president joe biden is expected to hand president obama his recommendations to stop gun violence in america. the parents who lost children one month ago in newtown are speaking out. >> we want to bring about changes that will stop a tragedy such as this from happening to any community ever again. because this can happen in any community. your community. it has already happened in tucson, littletown, aurora and blacksburg. it has happened in our schools, theaters, places of worsh

used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazines. >> the nra is of course fighting back, saying in a statement senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades. they know gun bans don't work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. >> joining me, carolyn, who is pushing a similar bill in the house, and also philadelphia mayor michael nutter. welcome to you both. when i heard dianne feinstein today, very personal,vy emotional, reliving one of the horrific things she went through, as indeed you did. here's what i don't get. i don't get why within minutes, really, of this assault weapons ban being proposed, already we start to hear, it may be impossible to get it through the senate, through the house. and the main reason may be democrats. democrats who are too worried about their own spins and their own backyards and their own political careers to do what they probably believe would be the right thing for their country. what do you do to change their minds and therefore the chances
, the courageous father who lost his son to sandy hook. >>> and this crime fighter says the nra has held congress hostage for years. plus, a former congressman and nra point person who says this. >> there is nothing more critical to our nation's well-being than our children's safety. >> why he thinks the way to stop school shootings is to put an armed gun outside the room. >> i wouldn't know what to do with an assault rifle, wouldn't know why i would want one. this "piers morgan tonight". >>> vice president joe biden is expected to hand president obama his recommendations to stop gun violence, meanwhile, the parents who lost their children in the massacre at sandy hook elementary school are speaking out. >> we want to bring out changes that will stop this type of tragedy from happening to any community ever again. because this can happen in any community, your community. it has already happened in tucson, littleton, aurora and blacksburg. it has already happened in theaters, places of worship, malls and offices. >> here is where i stand on guns, i am in favor of a ban on high-capacity magazines a
killed by guns. nra reports an unprecedented surge in membership, up 250,000 over the past month. add to that, record sales of ar-15 assault rifles. what's the solution? more weapons or stricter laws? let's talk about all of that tonight with our studio audience. it's our version of the town hall, the most important issue facing america right now. here is what the president is going to propose tomorrow. he will press for a ban on high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. he will push for universal background checks and criminal and mental health checks, press for an assault weapons ban and the president will request that money be made available to treat mental illness. and that schools have more security. i agree with most of that. all of this comes on a day of two new school shootings, one in kentucky that left two dead and one in missouri that left two men injured. if you want to be part of the conversation, join us on twitter. use our hash tag which is #gunsinamerica. michael nutter and his police commissioner. delaware attorney general beau biden, son of vice president jo

[ female announcer ] tylenol® cold multi-symptom nighttime relieves nasal congestion. nyquil® cold and flu doesn't. >>> today, president obama is pushing forward with his sweeping gun plans, vowing to make it a reality. the white house knows it will be a tough fight. chris murphy, welcome to you, senator. i spoke to your colleague last night. there is a sense although many senators and congressmen and women are determined to try to help the president get his way, there are an equally large number of democratic senators and a lot of republicans in the congress who just simply won't wear because they're worried about the nra coming after them and driving them out of office. what do we do about that? >> well, listen, i think the nra is in a fundamentally different position than they were just 35 days ago. they don't have a grip on congress like they did. and you have seen it. you have seen de
. you're a board member of the nra, which i don't think many people know. >> we have 76 board members. >> but you're a board member of the nra. >> yeah, mm-hmm. >> what is your view of the gun debate right now. and where can you see some kind of consensus? >> a member of the national rifle association at the very beginning said we ought to include people who have been adjudicated as mentally unstable in the national -- in the list of people who can't get guns. that was stopped by ted kennedy because the lobbyists didn't want that to happen. about half the states don't really get that information into the national check and get those in. if obama really considered this an important issue, he might have done something about it when he had a democratic house and a democratic senate. all this talk about republican obstructionism, the republicans had a majority of the house the last two years. the first two years of his presidency, he could have done immigration, didn't. could have passed something on gun control, didn't. >> do you own a gun? >> yes. >> what do you have? >> a shotgun. i li
's driven by fear from the gun rights lobbyists, nra and others, that if anyone had been armed at sandy hook, at the school, they would have dealt with the shooter. how do you try to deal with that mentality in a reasonable way that doesn't offend gun owners but actually works to reduce the total volume of guns rather than dramatically increase it? >> the second amendment is here to stay. people have a right to arm, have a right to handguns, within some reasonable regulation. i think you have to make people aware of the fact that, you know, confiscation is not going to happen. the notion that if you arm a lot of people, that somehow it would deter crime or deter these attacks, always incumbent on that approach, we have people who have received an awful lot of training under a stressful situation to expect them to take a handgun out or any sort of weapon out and fire it and do so accurately is just a -- it's a pipe dream. and i just don't see the answer being in expanding the universe of weapons and having more people with guns at schools. >> final question, commissioner. as we see particular
of course. >> if you were in a meeting with vice president joe biden tomorrow with the nra, and walmart, what would you be saying? >> that the discussion has not been going anywhere that we can tell in a productive way. we're not talking about making it so people can defend themselves precisely in these gun-free zones that have been the scene of all of our mass murders for the last 20 years. hopefully, at some point we're going to come to the realization that repeating the same policy year after year, getting the same deadly results is only going to get us the same deadly results the next time. >> right, so your solution, if you were there in that meeting would be to arm every school, every church, every hospital. everywhere that members of the public could be? >> you certainly would want to encourage people who are qualified to carry concealed firearm to be able to do so in a school zone. right now, that is illegal. in all but a couple of our states and some of our institutions of higher learning. but by and large, it is prohibited. that needs to stop, because we have been using those
with joe biden meeting with the nra and wal-mart and others. in the end, this has to get through congress and it also could be affected by executive order by the president and facing a sanction by the supreme court. >> there has not been much discussion about the challenge that has almost been inevitable. recently, a couple of years ago the supreme court has really emphasized that the lawful possession of fire arms is something that our constitution allows and protects. and it protects it with very clear language. >> it is a legal quagmire. there is no other word i can use for this. for a long time. the in interpretation for the second amendment not applying for an individual and that is now being used firmly as their right to have any arms that they like. >> you have been talking about how the conservative movement in this country has deregulated firearms in congress and it is true the courts true. that is true. what guns are covered is unclear. the hellar case is about handguns in the home. the again is what about larger weapons. what about outside the home. the dangerous weapons can st
convenient to be blaming guns for gun violence. especially when the n.r.a. has already identified the real culprits -- >> vicious, violent video games. we have blood-soaked films. our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill. >> clearly, the reason we have more gun deaths than anyone else in the industrialized world isn't the guns. it has to be that america is the only country in the world that has video games. >>> hello everyone. i'm don lemon. the stories you're talking about in just a moment. but first, let's get you up to speed on the day's headlines here. clinics and hospital emergency rooms across the country are packed with people sick with the flu, rolling up their sleeves for a flu shot. the cdc director says we won't know more weeks if the flu season has peaked. 47 states are reporting widespread flu activity right now. >>> the brother of ailing venezuelan president hugo chavez says he is recovering well from his latest search. chavez is being treated for cancer in cuba. he's been unable to return to cuba for a planned inauguration. chavez has no
